FY2019 grantmaking concludes record-breaking year!
EMpower’s 2019 fiscal year ended on June 30 as a record-breaking year, with over $3.8 million awarded in grants. This is the most in EMpower’s history! We are proud to have granted over $30 million through over 1,000 grants to support young people during EMpower’s history.
The year includes many exciting developments in our work empowering young people:
We began partnerships with 18 new grantee partners in six countries. These include 11 organizations from priority geographies for growth including Turkey, South Africa, Brazil, and Argentina, and 7 programs focused on younger adolescent girls in India, Peru and Argentina as part of our new Girl Fund initiative.
These new partners are:
Sadbhavana Trust (India), PUKAR (India), KHEL (India), Nirantar (India), Just for Kicks (India), Oscar Foundation (India), Chip Mumbai (India), Redes da Mare (Brazil), Abraco Campeao (Brazil), EMPUJAR- Fundacion Pleroma (Argentina), Asociacion Pukllasunchis (Peru), Fundacion Huesped (Argentina), Mudita Foundation (South Africa), Khululeka Grief Support (South Africa), KODA/Rural Schools Transformation Network (Turkey), Association for Struggle Against Sexual Violence/CSMD (Turkey), Youth Approaches to Health Association/YAHA (Turkey) and We Are Coding (Turkey).
5 final “sunset” grants were approved to longstanding grantee partners, as we come to the end of our 10-year partnership. These grants will fund projects to support each organization to “sunset” from EMpower funding stronger and with a sustainable future.
These partners are:
Zone One Tondo (ZOTO) (Philippines), Asociación Kallpa para la Salud y el Desarrollo Integral (Asociación Kallpa) (Peru), Akshara (Front for Rapid Economic Advancement India (FREA India)) (India), Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation (Vietnam) and Bolshaya Peremena (Big Change) (Russia).
We’re thrilled that of our FY2019 grantmaking, we were able to fund almost $1 million dollars in initiatives to support work with adolescent girls and foster innovation around girls programming. Some highlights of this work include:
We look forward to building on this growth and energy in FY2020, and seeing the inspiring results in the lives of young people!View All News
